A high-risk pregnancy is one in which the mother’s health or the baby’s growth and development may be jeopardized due to a new or existing health condition. Health issues may also increase the likelihood of premature birth.

If you are over the age of 35 or under the age of 17, you may be carrying a high-risk pregnancy.

Other common reasons for a high-risk pregnancy include:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Twin pregnancy
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • High blood pressure
  • Previous pregnancy complications
